Post Lockdown A/W Trends

Is anyone else tired of wearing loungewear and pyjamas? As Lockdown 2.0 is in full swing tracksuits and hoodies have once again become a staple wardrobe feature just as they were back in March. If you’ve had enough of the ‘house clothes’ and are searching for more creative outfits; then here are a few Autumn/Winter 2020 trends to buy into for all those pending post lockdown activities.  

Cutaway fabrics

Cut out garments were a runway favourite for the AW20 season. The cut-out features were displayed heavily on dresses, skirts and tops across fashion shows during the fashion season from New York to Paris to London. From midriff cut outs by Virgil Abloh at OFF White to sliced tops at Brandon Maxwell to deconstructed blazers at Area, cut-out garments are being reimagined in inventive ways. In addition to featuring in collections by Rejina Pyo, Christopher Kane and Victoria Beckham. Cut-out styles are emerging as one of the standout trends for Autumn Winter 2020 collections.   

Nostalgic Jewellery 

Think chunky gold chains, hoop earrings and colourful gemstones. Reminiscent of the 80s and 90s, a number of retro jewellery styles have made a return. The popular tubular choker trend from the late 90s has been given a modern update for 2020; offering a sleeker aesthetic, making the necklace a timeless classic, to add to your collection. Gold chunky jewellery has made its way back to the mainstream, designers are producing new simplistic yet modern silhouettes, that have effortlessly brought back the metal into the 2020 market. Adding a classic gold statement piece can be a great addition to a simple outfit. Gold chunky jewellery has become one of the most popular trends of the season, with its roots dating back to the 80s and 90s being heavily featured on the runways by Dior in 1991. 

Colour Clashing

Gone are the days of clashing colours being considered taboo or off limits, unusual colour pairings have become the norm. Pink, purple and red colour pairings frequently graced the runways this season, spotted at shows by Christopher John Rogers, Alberta Ferretti and Carolina Herrera. Selecting simple silhouettes, is the best way to ease into the trend to contrast with the bold colours for a polished and clean aesthetic.
